Buller District Council

Draft 2021 – 2031 Long Term Plan

Every three-years you are invited to tell Council what you think about its draft 10-year plan for the district.

About the Draft Long Term Plan

Council’s draft Long Term Plan (LTP) explains how Council intends to contribute to the community’s well-being over the 10-years covered by the plan. It also details a proposed financial strategy and outlines how progress will be monitored. The LTP guides everything Council does.

Have your say

Between 16 April and 18 May Council is consulting with the Buller District community to establish its views on the draft LTP.

The draft LTP consultation process is your chance to shape your district and provide feedback. By doing this you will bring your voice to the document. Council wants to hear if the priorities stated in the plan are still a focus for the community?

Policies for review

Thank you for engaging with Council to plan for the social, cultural, environmental, and economic well-being of the Buller District. Council needs to make tough decisions, juggle competing priorities with limited resources, maintain focus on the ‘big picture’ and act for the good of the whole district. To achieve this complex task Councillors must have a clear direction.
